Secondary education (including secondary vocational education)

The category comprises secondary and single structure education for 12/13 - 16/17 year olds.

  • It typically covers the last years of compulsory secondary education and includes vocational training if this falls into the age category, like the Centre de formation d'apprentis in France or the Istitutio tecnico in Italy.
  • In countries where full-time compulsory education ends at the age of 14 (Croatia) or 15 (e.g. Czech Republic, Greece, Cyprus, Austria, Poland, Slovenia, etc) materials for 16-17 year olds (at e.g. Gimnázium, Menntaskóli, Liceum, Oberstufenrealgymnasium) should still be entered in this category.
